Jimmy Fallon plans second album’s release
“Late Night” host Jimmy Fallon is known for performing with his famous musical guests, including Justin Timberlake, Bruce Springsteen and Blake Shelton, so it seems only natural the comedian and music enthusiast would release a new album.
Fans won’t have to wait long. His second record, not yet titled, is scheduled for release next summer on Warner Music Nashville, the Associated Press reports. It will feature parodies and songs that have become instant classics on NBC’s “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.”
His first album, “The Bathroom Wall,” was released in 2002.
Despite singing live with some of the biggest names in music on his show, Mr. Fallon said he still feels the pressure of getting his new album completed.
“Mostly, it means I should probably start writing some songs,” he said in a statement Friday.

Gold hopes series helps people with eating disorders
Tracey Gold, who once struggled with anorexia, admits she gets worried when she sees actresses on hit shows shrinking, but she doesn’t place the blame solely on Hollywood.
The actress told the Hollywood Reporter that the root of the problem is more widespread than just the entertainment industry.
“I always look at the first season of a TV show and see an actress one way, and then in the second season, you see her 10 pounds lighter - it’s a cycle,” Miss Gold said. “I think there’s an ongoing problem - not just Hollywood, but also society. It’s a widespread problem across the country.”
